Philadelphia Blanks Maryland 1-0

After a meeting between the two teams that saw the Maryland Black Bears topple the Philadelphia Rebels 5-2 on Tuesday in Sewell, New Jersey, the Black Bears returned home Friday night looking to build off that momentum. But despite outshooting the Rebels 47-13, they failed to get the puck past Philadelphia netminder Jakub Krbecek, losing the game 1-0.

The game’s lone tally didn’t come until the 05:30 mark of the third period when Rebels’ forward David Deputy got behind the defense and ripped a wrist shot past the blocker of Maryland goalie William Hakansson for the 1-0 lead. The Black Bears were able to ramp up the offense and get chances down the stretch but ultimately could not tie the game, falling by the final score of 1-0.

Maryland and Philadelphia rematch on Saturday night with puck drop scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET at Piney Orchard Ice Arena. All games can be streamed on HockeyTV.
